Flor McCarthy Personal Injury Solicitor Interviewed on The Sweeney Show Podcast

Flor was delighted and honoured to have recently been invited to be interviewed on The Sweeney Show Podcast. During the interview, Flor and David Sweeney covered many topics training from Flor’s early years in law to the present day and navigating our current (COVID-19) situation.

Flor talks about how he can draw from past experiences with the 2007 crash and his learnings from that time. He speaks about the key areas any business should be focusing on right now and in general. Areas that are often neglected when everything seems to be sailing along.

The pair speak briefly about the portrayal of solicitors and of how at times it is forgotten that solicitors are merely human too.

They also touch on the importance of mindset in running a legal practice and the new way of doing things as opposed to the somewhat outdated traditional methods.

Flor also reveals what advice he would give to upcoming solicitors and those contemplating entering the legal profession before finishing by speaking on the power of authenticity.



In contentious business, a legal practitioner shall not charge any amount in respect of legal costs expressed as a percentage or proportion of any damages (or other moneys) that may become payable to his or her client or purport to set out the legal costs to be charged to a junior counsel as a specified percentage or proportion of the legal costs paid to a senior counsel. A legal practitioner shall not without the prior written agreement of his or her client deduct or appropriate any amount in respect of legal costs from the amount of any damages or moneys that become payable to the client in respect of legal services that the legal practitioner provided to the client.
